San Jose, California, learned accidently that some of their neighborhoods had a higher-than-normal rate of young pedestrian accidents. This finding led to the implementation of the KIDSAFE study. The objectives of the study were to examine the incidence of accidents involving young pedestrians (10 years and younger) in San Jose, determine the factors associated with those accidents, and develop countermeasures. This article describes the KIDSAFE study and details its four components: 1) research available literature and statistics on young pedestrian accidents; 2) collect accident data for San Jose; 3) identify relevant collision factors and relationships; and 4) identify potential countermeasures.
